Third Phase of Underwater UXO Clearance of Lake Ohrid

24.02.2012

The 3rd Phase of Underwater UXO Clearance of Lake Ohrid (locations: Ohrid Harbor and Peshtani) has started on 22 February 2012 and is financed by United States Department of State, Bureau of Political-Military Affairs, Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement (PM/WRA), through ITF. The 3rd phase will last for 28 operational days and is implemented by specialized diving teams for underwater demining and EOD specialists from Republic of Macedonia Protection and Rescue Directorate and supervised by P.E.D. Sava d.o.o. The continuation of the project draws to a large extent from experience gained during first two clearance phases in 2010 and 2011 when more than 15 tons of dangereous UXO were removed and destroyed together with approximately 3.4 tons of other metal pieces (garbage). 

The absence of fear of UXO at the shores of Lake Ohrid will significantly contribute to safety and development of tourist potential of the local community at Lake Ohrid as well as of the Republic of Macedonia.
